Small Ideas Turn Into Google

by | Dec 19, 2007 | Observations

This year Inc. Magazine named Elon Musk, co-founder of PayPal, its Entrepreneur of the Year.

Musk has also founded several other companies including SpaceX, an aerospace start-up that planes to take astronauts to the International Space Station by 2010. That’s pretty cool!

To look at these two companies, they seem miles apart in purpose and function. How can the same guy be responsible for such different companies? The answer is simple. Vision.

All of the entrepreneurs I meet through the Rice Business Plan Competition, Aggie 100 and the FastTech 50 share that trait. They have a vision and work hard to see that vision become a reality. Sure there are bumps along the way, but as the article says, small ideas can grow into Google.

What small ideas do you have? How can your small idea grow into Google? What advice to you have for other entrepreneurs who are trying to make their vision a reality?
